I asked for and received a DVD player to put in the room where I treadmill. The TV gets terrible reception on its own, so at least now I can play videos. No more staring at a blank wall for me, thank goodness. emoticon

I asked for new exercise clothes.... yes a girl needs to look cute while sweating!

My husband is getting handweights, a resistance band, kettleballs, etc so I am planning to use them as well!

Gosh, I didn't ask for anything fitness related. I did ask for the Spark Cookbook, though. That's sort of related.

I guess what I really need can't be bought in the stores. I need motivation.

If I had to pick a fitness related gift I would have to say I would want a Wii. It's not on my list though.

Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.


A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?

Millie, my DH has a Bowflex (has had it for years) and loves it! I've just never gotten into the habit of using it - I still use my little dumbbells.

Carolyn, if you don't mind light weight ones, we got poles at Wal-Mart while we were hiking out west last May - very inexpensive!!

I'd love to have an elliptical but I didn't ask for it - really no place for it without giving up something else.
